Las Vegas, Nevada; Paris, France - April 21, 2008. Days of Wonder, the publisher of top-quality board and card games, announces the upcoming release of the Memoir '44 Campaign Bag.

The Campaign Bag is made of reinforced canvas in classic army "olive-drab" with multiple pockets and custom game-graphics that reflect the Memoir '44 packaging. It also includes a large-scale countryside map in the new BREAKTHROUGH format, with an exclusive ready-to-play battle map - Breakthrough to Gembloux on the reverse side.
"The Campaign Bag is the perfect complement to the Memoir '44 gaming experience," says Days of Wonder CEO, Eric Hautemont. "With design, materials and graphics that are evocative of the classic look of the World War II era, fans will now have a great solution for storing and traveling with their Memoir '44 games and expansions, just in time for the first major tournament season which will launch later this year."
The Memoir '44 Campaign Bag is 17 x 14 x 8 inches and includes a large-format, ready-to-play bonus map in our new "Breakthrough" format. It will be available in June from game retailers and the Days of Wonder web site. Street price is expected to be around $40 in the US and €40 in Europe.
